I've run into bandwidth issues with the hosting site I use... I'm at the free limit and am not sure how I am going to proceed... Starting to pay for something has it's pitfalls as I would then have to pay indefinitely...

Anyway, the good news is that the Free limit is a monthly issue and will reset in a couple days (Anniversary of my joining day, not end of month, so it's an odd date...)

My suggestion is as follows;

Wait until you see everything again.
Save the page locally so you can view it off-line. -- This way you have it and are not at the mercy of photobucket.

I will do something in the near future to alleviate this problem. Probably a PDF and a re-make of the photo part of the thread and host all the photos locally. Like anything, it's going to take a bit of time.

Have you perhaps thought that there is a very specific reason why I don't attach them?

I realize that choice is now having some consequences for me, and part of that solution might include attaching them locally. Also I plan on making a downloadable guide in .pdf for some other easily readable format.

Default F5 question dirveing ribbion speakers

Hi Gents, I dont want to hi jack or change the subject but i think i may be in the right place for an answer here?.

I am in the process of building a pair of F5 monoblocks and like the idear of Planear speakers and/or DIY ribbion tweeters, my question is would a F5 be able to drive a load like that?

I know it will go in to low ohms " with out burping" as papa says and a ribbion tweeter can be as low as 2 to 3 ohms , but is around 25 watts enough, do you think an F5 could do this? (though the sensivity of the ribbion depends on the mangents etc..)..if so my next project is.......?

Cheers
Johnny

I have used an F5 to drive my Apogee Stages without any problems; although I would recommend you build the version with multiple output devices.

Default How to Build It

This is really great.. all we now need is someone with time an enthusiasm to put together some PDF files for Pass DIY builds. This would be a great example of how to do it and it would be even better if this thread were referenced from a more central point, say Pass DIY site? It need not mean that they support the build description, but it would give newbies a flying start and the thread could be used for updates.

Thanks for a great piece of work

George
